Drafters have the important task of taking the collected field data from the field crew and putting it all together on paper. When field data comes into the office and is imported into CAD, it can often look like a bunch of jumbled dots on a screen to the untrained eye. But to a survey drafter, those dots tell a story. And more importantly form a picture. The drafters take the initial data and convert it into a survey drawing that then forms an actual depiction of the property being surveyed – think of it as one big “connect the dots” game.
While our field crews are critical for setting the building blocks of our surveys, our drafters are responsible for bringing the whole picture together – the meat and potatoes. They interpret field data, make sure it makes sense, is complete, and most importantly that it’s presentable and easily interpreted by our clients. Like our crews, they are also equipped with the latest software and technology to help them complete their jobs quickly and efficiently.
At McSteen we pride ourselves in cultivating a survey product that far exceeds industry standards both in accuracy and presentation. Our skilled team of drafters are instrumental in delivering this product. They are also the final step before handing the project over to our team of licensed surveyors for an overarching review and computation before stamping and signing our surveys.
